Following a humiliating defeat at the hands of the Indian team at the Manchester, Pakistan’s former captain, Waqar believes current Pakistani team is intimidated by the Virat Kohli-led Indian team.
Pakistan suffered their seventh defeat to India in World Cup, going down by 89 runs via D/L method this time on Sunday and Younis said the defeat exposed the “massive difference” between the two sides.
“We had good sides in the 1990s, but now I think this India team intimidates Pakistan. When Pakistan teams head into these games, they are always under pressure and feel like they’re the weaker team. That culture needs to change first, and then the fitness level needs to match the Indian players,” Waqar stated.
Pakistan has to win their last four group games to have any chance of making the semi-finals of the round-robin event, with South Africa next up on June 23.
